Subasri has been filmmaker for more than a decade. She also heads the Media Lab of the Indian Institute for Human Settlement (IIHS).
Her documentary films deal with contemporary politics. Her first documentary film ‘Brave New Medium’ on internet censorship in South-‐East Asia, has been screened at film festivals, both nationally and internationally. The award-winning ‘This or That Particular Person’ looks at the idea of official identity documents and in that context, the Unique Identity number. The film was adjudged as the Best Short Documentary Film at the International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala (IDSFFK), 2013. Her last documentary film ‘What The Fields Remember’ explores ideas of memory, violence and justice through survivors’ narratives of the massacre. Her new documentary film (in-production) explores questions of citizenship and nationhood in contemporary Assam.
Subasri is the recipient of the Charles Wallace award, the Chevening Fellowship, PSBT film fellowship and the Goethe Insitut Residency award at Salvador-Bahia, Brazil. Prior to going to film school, Subasri worked at the academic journal ‘Seminar’.
